Working with families and children in a digital world
June 1, 2021 - June 1, 2021
This session will provide educators with insights into the ways families and children are rethinking and using digital technology in their homes as a result of covid-19 and associated lockdowns and restrictions. Through his research with families from across Australia with the “This Digital Home” project, Daniel will take you into families’ homes and see videos, and hear from children about the role technology has in their lives.
Then, Daniel will share “Playing IT Safe”, a new early childhood resource to support educators to use play-based learning approaches to help children be safe online and develop their digital literacy relevant to their age and stage. You will leave with some clear tools and practices to support you in helping families and children use digital technology in positive and supportive ways.
